About the division

The New England Division was established in 2012 to service the MBA Members in the New England and Far North West of NSW.

The division runs from Tenterfield in the north to Uralla and Narrabi in the south and west to Bourke, including the towns of Moree and Walgett and all areas in between.

We hold quarterly Industry Updates at several of the the towns throughout the division, where members are able to listen and interact with industry experts and product suppliers. Members at these updates earn 2 CPD points by attending. Additional points may also be available by bringing along a partner or associate.

The Industry Updates are free to attend and snacks and light refreshments are always available for member enjoyment. 

The New England Committee is based in the strong membership town of Tenterfield, meeting on the same evenings as the quarterly Industry Updates. The committee is made up of builders, contractors and suppliers, allowing input from all levels of industry experience. 

Regular members find our Information Nights enjoyable, particularly in terms of camaraderie, information gathering and opportunities to network with like-minded people. Members exchange building stories which provide awareness of pitfalls or successful strategies, which can be very useful in assisting members run their businesses. 

The Divisional structure is very informal, providing a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere.

We welcome any tips and suggestions regarding potential guest speakers.
